Mughetti Dry (Yeah, I forgot to post this one)


I just realized that I never did post any pictures of this shawl dry. I got back-logged with work and and forgot so here it is. Mughetti remained flat after it was blocked and did not snap back as I had feared. It has a fuzziness to it that you wouldn't expect to have with this fiber. Not the softest shawl in the world since it's in Wensleydale but still very interesting to knit with.

That's spectacular, and I love the color.

Bethany said...

Wow! That is really breath-taking! Great work :)

Dear Amanda,

Thank you! I love how it looks even though it's out of Wensleydale rather than some luxury yarn.

Dear fleegle,

I love this color. I just wish this were a softer yarn.

Dear Littleberry,

I thought I actually had posted it. I guess I just dreamed that I had LOL! The color is one of the reasons I bought the fiber to spin even though it's not at all soft. It does hold its shape well though and the color shifts are very nice!

Dear domesticshorthair,

I'm so glad you like the color too! It's one of the few fibers from Verg that had intense color saturation so I just had to give it a try.

Dear Bethany,

Thank you! It's actually nicer than I thought it would be so I'm very pleased with it.

Dear fatganny,

Sorry to say that this is a vintage pattern that I don't believe has been re-printed. Mine copy is from Lavori artistici a calza 7. You would have to find a vintage copy to make it.
